Packaging and A Closer Look
Next, let’s open things up and see just what we’re dealing with here.
The packaging follows the usual Fatal1ty color scheme of red, black and silver. Right away, the front of the box tells you most of what you need to know. On back, they go into more detail, outlining all the critical features.
Another quick run-down of the features on top, and a promotional blurb on the bottom accompanied by a detailed breakdown of the supplied current on each rail.
Opening the box up, we see things have been wedged in fairly tight. The power supply itself sits there in a foam support, while the cables and accessories are concealed behind a cardboard divider.
And speaking of accessories, here they are. Everything but the AC cable is stuffed into a zippered pouch, which is helpful for keeping those extra modular cables together. Inside the bag, we see a total of eight cables: four PCI-E, two SATA, two MOLEX/floppy. There are no zip ties or velcro cable ties to help keep things neat, but those are easily obtained.
Looking at the back of the power supply itself, we see the by-now standard honeycomb vent grille, AC plug and power switch. Flipping it up on its side, we see the bottom is completely dominated by the 135mm fan, with a protective grill in place to keep unwary fingers and cables out.
On the side, we find the usual info sticker with current ratings and the usual slew of regulatory compliance icons. Around front, the attached ATX and EPS12V cables are accompanied by two rows of modular plugs, all clearly labeled.
